What is a murder mystery party?

In simple words: it’s a theme party where guests play the characters in a fictional story where they have to solve a murder and find the killer. But a murder mystery party is more than that. The players will not only have to discover the killer, but also they need to find clues or hints and try to come up with the perfect theory about the killer and the motive. 

How many people can play a murder mystery?

Usually, there are 6-8 characters in almost every murder mystery game or an online escape game. But there are mystery games out there that can be played by 10-20 people.  It all depends on the number of guests you have invited to your party. Keep in mind that for almost all the murder mystery games available today you can add or subtract any number of players. For example, if you have a game for 8 people but you have invited only 6 guests, you can subtract 2 characters from the story. Simple as that. 
Don’t forget that for each story you will need a narrator. Usually, the person that hosts the party is the narrator, but anyone can play that role. 

How long a murder mystery party lasts?

The storyline of a murder mystery game will give you and your guests plenty to talk about and explore. That is why is very difficult to say exactly how much time you will be playing the game. It all depends on how fast you discover hints or come up with a theory of who did it. Also, the killer is decided by a majority of votes. So, it can take quite some time for everyone to be on the same page and agree on who the killer is. From our experience, usually, a murder mystery game for 8 players can take between 1-4 hours. 

Can you play a murder mystery game online?

With the COVID pandemic and social distancing measures, it can be difficult to gather a large number of people for a murder mystery party. Luckily, we live in the age of technology and we can use it to our advantage. So, it’s not surprising that all the mystery games available can also be played online.
You can use Zoom, Skype, or any other platform if you want to host a virtual murder mystery party. Just keep in mind that Zoom has a limit on the guests that can be in the chat.
